Too emotional. Matt Finn is a darn good prospect. McCabe being his favourite player won't change that.

Simmons is not really a credible writer, he has a job because he is the media's most notorious leaf hater. If we ever get any good he'll be out of a job. What a useless occupation he has.

So... McCabe who declined with age? Someone who finished with over 1000 games played and over 500 pts... yeah.. I wouldn't call that a bad career.

I don't believe Burke ever said that Schenn wouldn't be traded nor did he say that Schenn's name was never involved in any trade discussions. I believe what he actually said was that the Leafs weren't shopping Schenn - meaning that they weren't offering Schenn in any deals but that doesn't mean other teams couldn't counteroffer and include Schenn in the negotiation.

Secondly, his comment about Matt Finn is beyond pathetic. I didn't realize that we were only allowed to choose our favourite players based purely on their talent and nothing else. God forbid you have a favourite player because you admire his work ethic, his personal story, etc.

McCabe was solid defensively, he got beat off the rush a bit, although even in those cases you'd note he was the one at least back in position. Set up in the D zone he was just fine, didn't run around, good and strong on the boards and in front of the net. Guy logged huge minutes and was relied on, with good cause, in all situations. I don't know how people in this city could watch him for the better part of a decade being our top D man and take away nothing but a few granted attrocious low lights as the sum of his defensive abilities.

Did anyone else see the press conference in which Burke smacked him down for being a moron? I damned near wet myself because I was laughing so hard.

Eventually somebody will respond to his usual crap with an Uncle Buck quote.

Whenever I see Steve Simmons, I think of this geek from the old "Degrassi" show:

The Schenn one:

Things change. Someone said this in a different thread but Higgins/Komisarek were once highly regarded in Montreal and looked to as the future... and we all know how that ends up. Mike Richards and Jeff Carter untouchable? Joe Thornton out of Boston? Soon to be Rick Nash?

Things change. Simmons' is an idiot.

I miss McCabe. Should have been the next Leafs captain. The fans ran him out of town when that guy played his heart out every night and always faced the media when things went badly, regardless of whether he had a three point night and the rest of the team messed the bed or he shot the puck into his own net. Good guy for Finn to admire.

we are playing right into this guys wheelhouse with a thread like this. Steve stirs the pot. He is a bored virgin. Not much more to discuss in here.
